Does Ice Age 4D's room move like other 4D cinema's
No. I know of no 4D cinemas that do have moving rooms?
Whilst I approved of Ice Age 4D as an addition at the start of the year, much in contrast with Sub Terra (and despite improvements), my opinion of it has declined... it's hardly worth redoing and the wait times for it are frankly ridiculous, that Ice Age regularly has a 40 minute queue is utterly insane. No 4D cinema is worth that.
To me, Alton Towers have two choices: Set Showtimes
- Have a show set to start eery, say, half an hour. Guests are expected to arrive 10 minutes prior to the showing and are 'counted in' to the batching area. Once the batching area is filled to the cinemas capacity guests are turned away
. Waiting doesn't happen, the ugly cattle-pen can be removed. Make the Show Shorter
- It's too long. Even when you're in there, it feels too long. A 4D show shouldn't last more than 10-12 minutes, it can easily tell a simple story and showcase it's effects in that time. Anything longer results in neck craning, headaches, crying children...
Don't get me wrong, Ice Age is a good addition for Cloud Cuckoo Land, just executed in a slightly wrong way.
